Ive got a buyer lined up but i haven't got the money yet. FRPP doesn't do cores. he wants to rebuild it for a 70 boss302 clone.

How are the electronics handled, PCM etc., is it a direct swap or?
I have been told that the PCM is matched to the engine and the data is transferred over either from the engine to the PCM or vice versa?
Just curious.

Its is simple swap. the cars ecu runs it. You only have to buy the ecu and wiring harness for retro fit swaps. they are plug and play for all 11 and up gts.

just search #8 failures. its very common with 11-12s. the new slug in the 13s doesn't seem to have any issues however. Ford was blaming them on the tuners but its been way to wide spread and the pistons are not showing the signs of detonation outside of the rind land looking like its been broke off with a sledge hammer.
